    Hi everyone,

    I have a new Wordpress blog which I want to promote with Connect, 'Like' button etc... ;)
    I added the following Open Graph tags to my header:

    Code:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml" xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/">
    <head>
    <title>XXXX</title>
    <meta property="og:title" content="AAAAA" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="BBBBBB" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="CCCCC" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="DDDDDDDDDDDD" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="EEEEE" />
    <meta property="fb:app_id" content="FFFFFF" />
    .........................
    When I open the post in my browser and view the source, everything is there.
    The problem is, when I enter my post URL to the FB check tool here:

    Code:
    http://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/
    It doesn't recognize my og meta tags. It only shows content of the post as description and the title.
    Also when I click the 'Like' button, on the user's wall it shows the real blog post title and the blog domain instead of my, for this purpose, special made open graph tags with a catchy title etc...
    The wierd thing is, when I enter my post URL in one of the two tools below, everything will be recognized:

    Code:
    http://ogit.heroku.com/
    http://www.opengraph.in/
    I really don't get it! Where's the fu**ing problem? :confused:
    Anyone can help me with this?

    If it helps, I'm using WP 3.0, iNove theme, sociable fb plugin and 'Add Your Own Headers' plugin...

    Okay, I checked it with permalinks off, and guess what? It's working!

    The linter shows the right og meta data now, but the like button posts still the standard post title and site name...arrgghh...

    Any suggestions?
